Today, Frieze announced the 20 artists who will contribute work to its free sculpture park, on view for the run of both Frieze London and Frieze Masters from October 15 through 19. Curated by Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s Director of Programs, Clare Lilley, the Regent’s Park display includes work by Yayoi Kusama, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Thomas Schütte, among others.
“Unique in the world’s art fairs, this year’s Frieze Sculpture Park is an intriguing and delightful breath of fresh air featuring artists from across three generations,” Clare Lilley said in a statement. “We see explorations of the natural world that include a remaking of a 1967 action by Roelof Louw and fencing by Caroline Achaintre, alongside analyses of the human form and its condition in works by Thomas Schütte and Reza Aramesh. Carefully sited across the English Gardens, the sculptures made from a range of materials including bronze, concrete and helium balloons, are a striking pageant of contemporary practice.”
The other participating artists are Caroline Achaintre, Reza Aramesh, George Condo, Michael Craig-Martin, Martin Creed, Gabriele De Santis, Matt Johnson, KAWS, , Seung-taek Lee, Roelof Louw, Marie Lund, Fausto Melotti, Richard Nonas, Not Vital, Kristin Oppenheim, Jaume Plensa, and Franz West.
